The title illustrates a farewell to the speaker's wife forbidding her to be unhappy and mournful at his depart.

    Vietnam War The Vietnam War was truly one of the most uncommon wars ever fought. This conflict was so hostile and ironic, that the official beginning and end could never be identified, or pinpointed. Likewise, the enemies and the allies looked exactly alike. This turmoil made everyone in the war confused, because "anyone" could be a friend by day, and foe by night. Additionally, what made the war so difficult was the tactics used by many soldiers. These tactics were called "Guerrilla Warfare," w...

    Value Delivery Network A value delivery network allows many companies to create customer value that cannot be created by use of the company's own value chain. A "Value delivery network," is made up of the company, suppliers, distributors, and ultimately the customers who partner with each other to improve the performance of the entire system (Armstrong et al. 52). This type of system interests me because I have always been curious as to what path a product or service must take in order to be con...

This is essential in ensuring the su...
